He told Sky Sports Italia: “He won’t be there tomorrow, for the moment.

"We are still talking, but there is no agreement yet. It’s not about money, but of conviction and style.

"It takes two to make a marriage work and if Ibrahimovic didn’t want to remain with the Rossoneri, then there wouldn’t be a negotiation."

Before adding: "I am always optimistic. I don’t work to create problems, but to find solutions.”

And now Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has declared both parties are in total agreement about next season.

An official announcement is expected imminently, with Ibrahimovic to play another year in Serie A.

Romano tweeted: "Endless Zlatan… confirmed! Ibrahimovic has reached an agreement with AC Milan.

"He’ll extend his contract until June 2021.
